Former One Life to Live star, Scott Evans (Fish) came in at number two at yearly Hot 100.   Evans was the highest charting man on soaps this year followed closely at number nine  by As the World Turns, Van Hansis (Luke).  Also making the top 40;  OLTL’s Brett Claywell (Kyle) in at nineteen, and newcomer, Eric Sheffer Stevens, ATWT’s Reid, was number twenty-five.  Finally, ATWT’s Jake Silbermann (Noah) dropped in this year’s poll, and ended up thirty-fifth in the countdown tally.

Here is what said about the choice for Evans in the runner-up spot. (Neil Patrick Harris was number one) ” Incidentally, there have been successful actors who have come out mid-way through successful careers, But Evans is part of a new breed: actors who are openly gay from the start of their careers, even sometimes playing gay characters. To hear Evans tell it, he never considered anything otherwise – and maybe that’s the hottest thing about him of all.”

So who do you think is the hottest of them all?

I hope this is another reason to consider in bringing back “Kish”

AMEN, Brian. OLTL isn’t the same without them! They were one of the best things to happen to OLTL in many years. So sad that the Executive Producer is too stupid to realize it! I will take a beautiful gay love story over teenage sluts, teen pregnancies, teens shacking up with each other, parents who allow it to happen and even pay their rent and bills for them, 30-year-olds acting like they are 12 again, rapist Todd, Mama-Ho Blair and especially RIGI which is enough to make any person throw-up. (What do they see in this couple anyway ….. especially FF)!

I’m afraid Mr. Valentini will never bring Kish back (no matter how much it is proven that they should never have been let go in the first place) because he doesn’t have the cahonies to admit he made a HUGE mistake by firing them. Frankly, he doesn’t care what viewers want anyway, which is obvious from the crap that viewers are currently being fed on the show. And, he won’t even acknowledge Kish fans at all. FV and OLTL have basically ignored a whole segment of viewers (those 25-35 year olds) who watch the show on a daily basis, or at least USED to watch the show. They have tried shoving RIGI down viewers’ throats which has just made viewers hate them even more, and now they are trying to shove a boatload of teens onto viewers. Mr. Valentini, the majority of people watching soaps are NOT teenagers. They fire four quality actors (supposedly for budgetary reasons), and then turn around and spend a fortune hiring professional dancers, choreographers, designers and other “professionals” to produce a HS musical that ended up being mostly made up of adults and didn’t go over very well because it wasn’t anything like a real and actual HS musical or prom, but more like a Broadway disaster! They have since also added to the cast, so obviously the four firings had nothing to do with budgetary problems and that was just another one of Mr. Valentini’s lies for the benefit of OLTL viewers and the media too.

I’m starting to think that maybe Mr. Valentini is suffering from the same thing as Jessica …… maybe he was trying to relive HIS youth and high school days all over again.

Mr. Valentini also stated that, once they did the Kish coming out story, there was nothing left to tell of the storyline once Oliver came out of the closet. WOW! Did Mr. Valentini’s life come to an abrupt halt when HE came out of the closet? I always thought a gay person’s life basically began when they came out of the closet ……. they were finally free to be who they naturally are and should be.

Unfortunately, Mr. Valentini would rather “force” the very UNpopular RIGI couple (whose disapproval rating is over 85%) onto viewers instead of giving them what they want most ….. Kish…….. who probably has an even better than 85% APPROVAL rating.

If OLTL tanks in the near future, there will be only ONE person that viewers should blame for its cancellation. Are you listening Mr. Valentini?????????

VAN HANSIS is the hottest!

Jon Lindstrom and Cady McClain Announce They Have Ended Their Marriage

After much speculation, General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) and Cady McClain (ex-Jennifer, DAYS, ex-Rosanna, ATWT, ex-Dixie, AMC et al) have officially confirmed and announced they have gone their separate ways and have ended their marriage.

For months on social media, it was clear that the two were seemingly apart, not appearing pictured in any of each others posts.

Now, on a mutually shared Instagram post, Jon and Cady made an official statement on the status of their relationship, beginning with “Cady and Jon here. We are taking this opportunity to make a short statement about our relationship status. It may be obvious to some based on our posts that we’ve taken some time apart. After serious consideration we have decided that our goals have been taking us in different directions and to end our marriage.”

As to the future, Jon and Cady explained, “We remain friends and wish each other every happiness. As people who work in the public eye, it can be difficult to have a private life. Regardless, we ask for your kind consideration in this matter.”

Jon and Cady met when they both appeared on As the World Turns, he as Craig Montgomery, and she as Rosanna Cabot. After four years together, the couple decided to get married in 2014.

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
